We're Here!

Hello everybody!  I hope that you are all keeping well.

This is going to be another quick one today, I'm afraid.  We're here!  We're settling very nicely into our new home up here in South Yorkshire.  Of course we still have boxes to unpack but on the whole we're done.  We have a MASSIVE garden, which I really can't wait to make a start on when the weather gets a bit warmer.  Freya is going to LOVE all of the extra space come the Summer (especially seeing as the previous occupiers have left their big trampoline in the garden!)  We are so close to the town centre and have walked there and back a few times.  We have a HUGE park around the corner where Freya can "weeeeeeee" while on the swings.  All in all, things are going well.

I have even had some time to catch up on my crochet projects that have been on the go for a few months.  I don't know whether I mentioned before, but Hubby's brother and sister-in-law are expecting their first babies in December - non-identical twins!  We're all sooo excited.  I have been crocheting each twin a blanket, which I have really enjoyed but have also been a little bit frustrated with as I have had to be quite careful with the colours I've chosen as we don't know whether they're going to come out blue or pink!

Speaking of which, we have had our 22 week scan and, unlike my brother-in-law, we were very keen to find out what we are's ANOTHER GIRL!!!!!  We're really pleased.  I think Hubby would have liked a boy, just for balance, but he's still pleased nonetheless.  On a completely practical level, it means that we don't have to rush out to buy loads of new clothes! ;-)

Anyway, I hope to come back soon with some photos of my crochet and also perhaps a few of the house.  Until then, take care.
